Work is part of having purpose, structure and money to live. Returning to work while in recovery can be challenging in may ways. Work is stressful. There are several organizations and non-profits that help people get to work or improve their employment options. Volunteering, paid employment and apprenticeship or college are all great ways for people in recovery to develop job skills.
Recovery Partners Montgomery offers training for people in recovery interested in becoming employed or credentialed as a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist. Anyone can benefit from these recovery coach trainings that can vary from 3 hours to 4 days long. Visit our Training page or Calendar for information on upcoming Recovery Career Trainings.
